Toronto Walking aims to set the standard for eco-friendly walking activities in Toronto’s unique greenspaces.
It is the mission of Toronto Walking to promote good health and well-being through walking and to inspire an appreciation for the physical beauty of Canada and the protection of its flora and fauna.
I’ve hiked many of the ravines and trails within the City of Toronto and have trekked through several sections of the Bruce Trail. The main walking tour promoted here (Monday – Friday at 10:00 am from Davisville Subway Station) has always been one of my favorites. It’s in the middle of the city, it’s uncomplicated, and it is easy to plan for half a day. It is doable year round. The scenery is varied, from the heavily treed sections of Mud Creek, to the wetlands right before entering the Brick Works. And at the Brick Works I always make a point of stopping in at the Belong Café for a refreshing beverage. If you are tempted, they also serve the best Blueberry Scones you’re ever likely to taste. It’s a nice place to take a short break before heading back into the trees for some more peaceful walking before winding back into the busy city streets.
